Water, sugar, yeast is all it takes to get a high alc concoction. A hydrometer would be very handy here. Dissolve sugar in water...say 2# sugar to 3/4gal water, check SG, you're looking for about a 1.100 so adjust sugar and water to get this. Sprinkle a pkt of Lalvin 1118 yeast on sugar water and watch it go. In 4-5 days you'll have a 15%alc +/- concoction. To get bombed on a budget that would be the way to go.
